Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Dumb soundboard questions...

I searched and couldn't find and answer...

1. Can there be more than one soundboard recording for a show?
1a. I thought I remember reading somewhere that ordinary tapers could plug into the soundboard if they asked nicely? True?
2. With the recovery/restoration of the Betty Boards tapes, does this mean soundboard recordings will now exist for shows that only had AUD recordings?

1. Yes
2. Yes, and in addition to "asking nicely", offering a few grams of white powder would help you get access (at least in the later years)
3. Possibly. We still don't know the full extent of what additional shows may surface. I think that's what's got the rabble around here so interested in this story.

Nice article about Bear and the history of recording live shows:

Yes, just wait...it'll post; BTW, go to those dups, and click "edit" and then "delete" and they go away...

Too bad I can't do that; you might note my name has the "invisible asterisk" associated w it, that implies infinite wisdom, but censorship is taking it too far...rather, I just bore posters into submission.

You, sir, are the Wowbagger The Infinitely Prolonged of the Archive. Serving out a life sentence in the pursuit of insulting everyone on the board.

So far so good.

"Most of those who are born immortal instinctively know how to cope with it, but Wowbagger was not one of them. Indeed, he had come to hate them, the load of serene bastards. He had his immortaility inadvertantly thrust upon him by an unfortunate accident with an irrational particle accelerator, a liquid lunch, and a pair of rubber bands. The precise details are not important because no one has ever managed to duplicate the exact circumstances under which it happened, and many people have ended up looking very silly, or dead, or both, trying.
To begin with it was fun, he had a ball, living dangerously, taking risks, cleaning up on high-yield long-term investments, and just generally outliving the hell out of everybody.
In the end, it was Sunday afternoons he couldn't cope with, and that terrible listlessness that starts to set in at about 2:55 when you know you've taken all the baths you can usefully take that day, that however hard you stare at any given paragraph in the newspaper you will never actually read it, or use the revolutionary new pruning technique it describes, and that as you stare at the clock the hands will move relentlessly on to four o'clock, and you will enter the Long Dark Teatime of the Soul.
So things began to pall for him. The merry smiles he used to wear at other people's funerals began to fade. He began to despise the Universe in general, and everybody in it in particular.
This was the point at which he conceived his purpose, the thing that would drive him on, and which, as far as he could see, would drive him on forever. It was this:

He would insult the Universe.

That is, he would insult everybody in it. Individually, personally, one by one, and (this was the thing he really decided to grit his teeth over) in Alphabetical Order."
